Happy New Year to everyone! May everyone receive strength, courage and the general ‘wherewithal’ to tackle this year with all of its ups and downs. Just as it is not wholesome to dwell on the past year’s failures, it is equally unhealthy to live off of past successes alone. Facing a new year can be exciting and terrifying all at the same time. So go for it the best you can!
To tie up the end of 2011, Ecole Holt Couture had the great pleasure of presenting the proceeds of its annual fund raising fashion event “Eleganza 2011” to Making Changes Association of Calgary. This charitable organization provides the opportunity for women in transition to enter the workforce with confidence and a work-appropriate wardrobe. Through several sessions of free professional advice and support it has successfully helped around 1200 clients in 2011. Ecole Holt Couture supports this organization and its vision by producing an annual fashion event fundraiser showcasing its student’s work and projects on the runway, along with some vintage couture collections created by the Founder. This year a silent auction was included, with many wonderful gift items generously donated by its sponsors.
We can finally show you the much talked about wedding gown now that the wedding has been celebrated in one of the most beautiful locations in the world – Lake Louise, Canada at Christmas time…
Thanks to the bride for allowing us to showcase the gown at the fashion event – before the wedding! And Kudos to everyone who saw the gown before the wedding and kept it quiet not to spoil the surprise for the groom!
Next time we will review a new book that turned out to be very interesting in terms of couture and bespoke tailoring…..
